With 11 of the 12 teams now qualified for both the men’s and women’s hockey tournaments at the 2012 London Olympic Games, the Olympic picture is clearing up. But with so many teams making it to the games through so many different events, FIH.ch thought it would be useful to remind hockey fans, which teams are headed to London and how they earned their berth to the Games.
